Table of Contents 

The 1980-1981 school year signified the 
first complete year of university status. 
W hen in December of 1979, Governor Dick 
Thornburg announced that Gannon Col- 
lege had achieved university status, no one 
realh seemed that excited, at least not the 
student body. Since everyone was preparing 
for finals week and the long-awaited 
Christmas break, university status just 
didn't seem important at the time. 

Throughout the spring semester, howev- 
er, small changes were noticed from signs 
being changed to a university dance. Thus 
« ith the start of the fall 1 980 term, univer- 
mi> status was pretty much accepted and 
forgotten. The change had occurred and 
Gannon University had arrived. 

But with the change to university status 
has Gannon itself really changed? Obvious- 
ly the name has changed and the school is 
growing in leaps and bounds, but what 
about those important little things that 
have always made it worthwhile to say "I go 
to Gannon." This year we at the Lance, 
hope to present Gannon University and the 
changes that have occurred over the past 
>ear. More important, we would like to 
show that even though the name has 
changed, the "spirit" of Gannon still lives 
on. Those things which made Gannon Col- 
lege the small, friendly, personal school 
have not changed, and we hope never will. 


Change It ii ver) apparent when one 
glances around the campus on the way to 
N i onl> have nearly all the college 
Mgns been replaced with university signs 
but old familiar buildings are being miracu- 
IousIn transformed into new. School poli- 
ce not only changing but new ones are 
being created each week. Gannon Universi 
t> has everything from a new logo to ne 
majors to computerized registration. So it' 
quite obvious that Gannon has changed 
But look a little deeper and you might

... to find that be\ond the obvious 
changes Gannon is still basically the same 
I \cn with university status, students must 
still endure Erie weather dodging their way 
across ''th Street. Crowds still come to the 
\udi to cheer the Golden Knights and stu- 
dents continue to express their spirit in the 
form of Gannon T-shirts. The old house is 
still on the corner of 6th and Peach looking 
.is it has for years while the rundown and 
usually forgotten Walker building took on a 
brand new look and function. But most im- 
portant, while the name has changed and 
there are new faces, the people behind the 
Gannon University name are still your typi- 
cal Gannon people. 

So continue as we attempt to recapture 
the good times and the not so good times — 
the problems, the improvements and the 
trials and tribulations of Gannon Universi- 
t> and the people who made the past 
> ear special. We hope we have captured the 
moments you would most like to remember.

Class of '81 — we made it! 

Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors look 
at graduating seniors with envy, looking 
forward to the day they can officially put 
Gannon behind them. 

For three years students manage to get 
through all the bummers college has to of- 
fer by telling themselves that one day they 
will be seniors preparing to get out. 

And once they get to be seniors, they 
begin to realize a little more as the years 
wear on, that graduation may not be all 
that it's cracked up to be. 

Graduating means leaving Gannon, only 
to go . . . where? For all the problems with 
college life, real life is usually worse, and at 
least different. 

Working 9 to 5 at a real job isn't like 
attending classes from 9:30 to 1:30. And 
coming in late or not coming in at all is 
much easier at school than it is in a real job. 

Real jobs and real life: it's all so . . . 
"real." That's probably what causes the 
most apprehension among graduating sen- 

John I li,'/;cu

The 8-Ball dance isn't real, the Scrounge 
isn't real, 8:00 o'clock classes aren't real, 
books on reserve in the LRC aren't real and 
God knows commencement speakers aren't 

Maybe that's why graduating seniors get 
apprehensive about leaving. And maybe 
that's why grad schools look better and 
better as May approaches.

Student spotlight — Rona Nesbit 

At the 1981 Commencement of Gannon 
I niversity, it wasn't hard to see that Rona 
Nesbit was a winner. At the ceremony, she 
w as the recipient of the Gannon University 
Medal of Honor, the Richard Beyer Memo- 
rial Award, and the Joe Luckey Service 
\ward. These honors, for character, lead- 
ership, scholarship, outstanding intercolle- 
giate athletic participation and outstanding 
dedication and service to Gannon, were al- 
most too much for Rona to hold in her 
hands as she continued to return to the po- 
dium to accept them. She walked away with 
an armful of placques, a degree, and a 
shower of applause. And Rona Nesbit de- 
served them all. 

In her four years at Gannon, Rona is 
probably best known for her participation 
on the Gannon Women's Basketball Team. 
I n 1 980-8 1 , she broke the 2,000 mark for a 
career point total, breaking all season re- 
cords at Gannon. The 5'5" guard, one of the 
team captains, set high standards for the 
Gannon Basketball club, and has been 
termed to have had the greatest career in 
Lady Knight history.

Gannon — the year in review 

Nineteen Eighty-Eightyone was a year 
Gannon spent dealing with campus addi- 
tions and improvements, institutional gov- 
ernance changes, and faculty compensation 
increases. But the really interesting news 
- the stuff that got students talking — 
dealt with Gannon not getting a concert 
and trying to get rid of the "Zurn Hall 

At the beginning of the school year the 
Student Government Association (SGA) 
allocated money for a concert — even 
though the previous year's Livingston Tay- 
lor concert attracted less than 500 people 
and lost over $4,000. The organizers of the 
Taylor concert said it gave the concert com- 
mittee a foot in the door. Last September 
the SGA surveyed students about a concert 
and received these statistics: 

- 96% thought a concert should be 
part of the social calendar. 

- 94% would support a concert at 

- 95% would be willing to spend 
$5.00 to see such a concert. 
The SGA then went about trying to line 

up a group for a spring concert. One group 
cancelled, then another, then another. Fi- 
nally Gannon settled on The Michael Stan- 
ley Band — and this time Gannon can- 
celled, reportedly because Stanley raised its 
price. The SGA decided it wasn't worth it 
and spent the money elsewhere. 
Students were forced to look elsewhere 

for entertainment — and some found it in 
the story of the flasher in Zurn Hall. 

One morning during October break, 
while Dean Halit Kosar's secretary, Lois 
Spcice, was working in her third floor of- 
fice, a man came in, exposed himself and 
masturbated, Speice said. 

Speice called the switchboard for help 
and two security people showed up five

minutes later. The search was on but they 
couldn't find him even though Security 
Chief Mario Bagnoni said he had caught 
the gu\ before and knew who he was. 

Campus security was an on-going issue 
throughout the year. 

Other on-going news concerned Gannon 
physical plant expansion in the downtown 
area. Gannon spent alot of time — and 
eventually money in some cases — trying to 
decide which of a large number of down- 
town Erie buildings for sale to buy. 

Gannon actually bought two — the Ken- 
ilworth apartment building on Sixth and 
Chestnut Streets and the Presbyterian 
Church on Fifth and Sassafras Streets. The 
apartment building was bought for 
$600,000 and will house non-freshman stu- 
dents in September 1981. 

Gannon officials planned to have the 
church replace the chapel in the Old Main 
Annex. They planned to study over the 
summer what to use the adjoining educa- 
tion center for. The church cost Gannon 

Gannon officials also considered possible 
uses of The Griswold Plaza Post office 
which was vacated in the spring. And of 
course Gannon was still thinking about 
buying The Boston Store, which has been 
vacant and for sale since June, 1979. 

Gannon officials also spent time continu- 
ing the transition from college to university 
structure, after having been named a uni- 

versity in December, 1979. The school year 
began with a new college being formed 
through the merger of three programs. 

The Evening Session, Open University 
and Continuing Education programs be- 
came The Erie Metropolitan College of 
Gannon University, with Dr. Richard Han- 
sen as dean. 

Other news concerned the faculty's re- 
quest for a nine-percent cost-of-living in- 

crease, increased fringe benefits and extra 
compensation. This request was fully sup- 
ported by the Deans Council, partially sup- 
ported by the SGA and The Business Af- 
fairs Committee and rejected by the Ad- 
ministrative Council. 

The faculty eventually got a seven per- 
cent increase with other adjustments for the 
1981-82 school year. It would cost Gannon 
about $525,000.

Faculty spotlight — Fr. Casimir Lubiak 

w hen I r Casimir Lubiak started work 
at the Gannon College Library, the budget 
for the library was about S2.000. There 
were onl> about 16.000 volumes. There 
were five workers in the library and the 
library was confined to the Old Main An- 
nex where oil ices and the Student Activi- 
ties Center is now. 

That was 32 years ago. in 1949. Fr. Lu- 
biak had graduated from Erie's Cathedral 
Prep and Baltimore's St. Mary's Seminary 
and got a Master of Science in Library Sci- 
ence from Western Reserve University in 
Cleveland. He began his work at Gannon 
under Monsignor Lorei, the library's first 

Lubiak became the second director in 
1956, and has been in charge ever since, 
until October 1 980 when he decided to step 

V\ ith Lubiak as director the library has 
grown into a full-fledged learning resource 
center. The budget has grown to almost 
$300,000. there are over 161,000 volumes 
and 3 1 .000 bound periodicals. The salaries 
for workers cost over $200,000. and the li- 
brary moved into its new home — the Nash 
Learning Resource Center — in 1973. 

Fr. Lubiak was one of those who de- 
signed the new LRC — with Lorei, a couple 
consultants, faculty and "of course, the stu- 
dents had some ideas", Lubiak said. 

Lubiak said he wanted the LRC to have 
an open-air concept. Since Gannon is 
smack in the center of downtown Erie, all 
Gannon buildings are surrounded by ce- 
ment. With the new LRC "we wanted to 
show a little green". Lubiak said. 

The designers did that by leaving open 
spaces b\ the sides of the building, below 

street level. This allows people on the base- 
ment level to see trees and plants instead of 
concrete and cars. 

A new library was supposed to be one of 
the first new buildings for Gannon to add to 
the campus, but classroom space came first 
Lubiak said. Then when Gannon decided to 

expand the library a moratoriam was de- 
clared on federal grants to libraries and 
other college buildings. 

While Gannon waited, the price of the 
complex went up $500,000 in 15 months, 
Lubiak said. The old library "was a nice 
room" but it "became so crowded we had to

store books in Zurn", he said. 

Gannon finally got help from the federal 
and state governments and the LRC was 
built providing the academic community 
w ith a television studio, dial access and oth- 
er audio-visual facilities, study rooms and 
seating for 1.000. Thirty years ago, Lubiak 
said, the library didn't have any space for 
study rooms. 

Lubiak said he didn't think students to- 
day were using the library materials more 
than students of 30 years ago — as far as 
taking them out. But he thought they were 
using the facility itself more than the old 
library was used. 

As the university grows and goes into 
more graduate research; the library will 
have to expand — in physical size and in 
budget. Lubiak said. The LRC was de- 
signed in modules so that the open spaces 
can be converted to usable space if neces- 
sary, he said. 

The basement floor is already crowded 
with periodicals and instructors want more 
facility studies, he said. "There's always 
pressure from somebody to add some- 
thing." and there may have to be an expan- 
sion after ten years, he said. 

Putting materials on microfilms is expen- 
sive but cculd eliminate the need for expan- 
sion. Gannon will have to use more micro- 

film "even though students hate micro- 
film", he said. 

Lubiak never really expected Gannon to 
grow this big. "I thought it would remain a 
small college" he said, because Gannon was 
originally founded for local students. 

But he has seen a lot of growth in the past 
30 years. So why retire now? 

Lubiak said he thought it was time to 
"inject a little new blood into the system". 
He thinks his successor, Fr. Thomas Sny- 
derwine will do a good job. "I'm sure he'll 
have new visions maybe, plus youthful en- 
thusiasm," he said. "And I think he'll be a 
good director from what he has shown so 

Lubiak won't be leaving the LRC 
though. He has assumed the responsibility 
for overseeing the library collections — 
"something I've always liked, that's why I 
choose that," he said. 

So Lubiak will still be a significant part 
of the facility he helped to build, and which 
he is proud of. "We were able to meet the 
standards of the accrediting association 
since Monsignor Lorei and I were togeth- 
er," he said. 

"Everybody here is to provide services to 
the students. That's the whole reason for 
the existence of the building." 

The most valuable part of the human 
machine is ihe self-starter.

Registration used to be done on a primi- 
tive basis. It used to be that students had to 
line up in the Audi to get registration cards 
verified, then stand in two or three lines for 
each division to get admit cards for classes 
in humanities, business, science or liberal 
studies. And finally, they had to get in line 
to turn the cards in for billing purposes. 

But Gannon did away with all those lines 
in 1980 when they started doing registra- 
tion on the university's new computer. Now 
there was just one big, slow moving line. 

Actually Gannon got the new computer 
in 1979 but it took awhile to fully utilize it. 
The new computer was bought for instruc- 
tional use — meaning students and teach- 
ers could now use it for class and research 
— and institutional use — administrators 
in the registrars and business affairs office 
could use it for registration and billing. 

Students and teachers used to have to use 
terminals in Russell Hall that were tied into 
the Erie School District's computer at Tech 
High School. Administrators as well didn't 
have their own computers to use. Now there 
are terminals in several offices in Old Main. 
But in the minds of many students, who had 
to stand in lines for hours to register and 
later, pay bills there weren't enough termi- 
nals. Once you got to the terminal, every- 
thing was punched up with convenient 
speed and accuracy. But two terminals for 
over 3,000 students?

Originally founded as a fraternity for 
men of Italian descent, APD has since then 
opened its doors to all interested parties. 
However, they still maintain their proud 
Italian beginnings with their annual Spa- 
ghetti Dinner held in October. The pro- 
ceeds from the dinner benefit the Gertrude 
Barber Center. 

For their holiday activities, the brothers 
have a Halloween party with the kids at the 
center, and in December they hold their 
"Toys For Tots" benefit party. 

Keeping up with the social life at Gan- 
non, the APD brothers held a pajamma 
party and were the beer chugging champs 
during Greek Week. 

The APD's are under the leadership of 
President John Marzula and Vice-Presi- 
dent Bill Shugars.

The 1980 prcsidental campaign began to 
have it's effect on Gannon students and the 
downtown area early last school year as 
journalists, political watchers, etc. began 
diverting from their prepared speeches long 
enough to endorse a candidate or predict 
the winners NBC newswoman Jessica Sa- 
\ itch, for instance spoke at the Erie Hilton 
and predicted the 1 980 race would put Ken- 
nedy against Howard Baker. Oh well, can't 
win em all Jessica. 

Later on in the school year the primary 
races began heating up and most candi- 
dates put emphasis on the crucial Pennsyl- 
vania primary. The only major candidates 
to visit Erie though was Kennedy, who was 
the only remaining Democratic challenger 
to President Carter. 

Kennedy's visit was preceded by his son's 
who came to the Downtowner Holiday Inn 
to meet with representatives of local college 
newspapers, including the Gannon Knight. 
But when the Senator came to town he 
spoke at Mercyhurst College not Gannon. 

In fact from the time the campaign offi- 
cially started on Labor Day until Election 
Day there wasn't much politicking at Gan- 
non by major candidates. 

Ronnie, Nancy, Walter, George and Ro- 
salynn all made stops in Erie but none of 
them set foot on Gannon land. Reagan 
came the closest when he arrived in town

one and a half hours late to make a speech 
on the steps of the Erie Courthouse to 
throngs of shirt-sleeved people who filled 
6th Street and adjacent properties all the 
way from Peach to Sassafrass. 

After a summer of making goofs such as 
the one that implied President Carter was 
courting the Ku Klux Klan, Reagan began 
his campaign swing through the East with 

advise from his aides not to shout from the 
hip anymore. The result was two Erie 
speeches — after his courthouse speech 
Reagan spoke at the GE plant — that 
sounded just like his Cleveland speech the 
day before. In between attacks on Carter 
Reagan talked about lowering taxes, in- 
creasing defense spending and balancing 
the federal budget.

Then he left the steps of the courthouse 
before anyone could ask any questions 
talked briefly to members of Gannon's 
TKE fraternity, and sped off to his next 

Two weeks later, October, Rosalynn 
Carter was in downtown Erie giving a 
speech at the Hilton at 10th & Peach 
Streets. The First Lady devoted much of 
her speech to telling the audience that she 
wanted to see her husband continue to be 
president for another four years. 

"We have had too many frivolous mo- 
ments in this campaign. We are talking 

about the future of our country. We must 
have Jimmy Carter in the White House for 
four more years" Mrs. Carter said. 

But the only real reason she gave the lis- 
teners for voting for Jimmy was that he 
wouldn't make the same mistakes twice. 
"He is a wiser man today than he was four 
years ago. He has learned a lot." she said. 

Mrs. Carter also stressed that the coun- 
try needed her husband as President be- 
cause he shared the same values as all 
Americans, but all the polls taken in 1980 
showed that most Americans were becom- 
ing more conservative and traditional —

right in line with Ronald Reagan's personal 
values and views of what America should 

Reagan's views of moral men and women 
striving for personal freedom from govern- 
ment interference and collective freedom 
from foreign countries seemed in tune with 
the views that won Richard Nixon a land- 
slide victory in 1972. Neither the silent ma- 
jority of the 70's nor the moral majority of 
the 80's depended on the support of young- 

Reagan was so far ahead in the polls — 
and ended up winning in November 4 by 

over eight million votes — that he really 
didn't need to court the youth vote. Speak- 
ing across the street from Gannon's Old 
Main, was about as close to the University 
as Reagan could have been expected to get. 
The 1980 election just wasn't one in 
which young voters played an important 
part — at least for the immediate time. The 
only candidate who drew any interest 
among the college set was Independent 
John Anderson. And while Anderson didn't 
come to Erie, his running mate Patrick Lu- 
cey was the only major candidate to visit 
Gannon. Lucey spoke in one of the Zurn 

lecture halls five days before the election 
denouncing Carter and Reagan as giving 
the voters no real choice. 

Anderson and Lucey surely must have 
expected that they would lose the election, 
but at least their winning about eight of the 
vote showed that third party candidates 
maybe taken more seriously in the future. 

And as far as appealing to young voters, 
the Independent ticket did even better, at 
least at Gannon. A couple campus polls 
showed Carter and Reagan neck and neck 
with Anderson getting a healthy 20-25 per-

Although a relatively new fraternity on 
campus Delta Chi has become an estab-

have been at Gannon. In April of 1 98 1 , the 
brothers of Delta Chi will celebrate their 
tenth anniversary of their charter here. 

Like the other Gannon fraternities, Delta 
Chi has also been involved in local good will 
activities. The fraternity has supported the 
Erie Infants Home Center by Christmas 
carrolling and putting on various skits for 
the children at the center. 

Every Saturday night Delta Chi holds its 
usual theme parties, but they distinguish 
themselves with their annual T & T Night 
(Taco and Tequila). They also have a toga 
party in honor of the Delta Chi Fraternity 
featured in "Animal House". 

Delta Chi is under the leadership of their 
President Steve Davis and Vice-President 
Jim Yount.

ings that would continue for the next two 
days and prompting one motorist stopped at 
a light on Sassafrass Street to get out of his 
car and scream at the top of his lungs for 
some relief. 

By Tuesday, there was no relief in sight, 
only more snow — so much that classes at 
all area schools including Gannon were 
cancelled. Some students, maybe thinking 
that universities weren't ever supposed to 
close, dug their way downtown for nothing. 
But most probably just stayed in bed.

For Tau Kappa Epsilon, the year 1980- 
1 98 1 was one which their chapter here will 
long remember. The Fall semester was 
highlighted with a visit from their brother 
Ronald Reagan in the closing weeks of the 
1980 presidential campaign. During Mr. 
Reagan's stay in Erie, selected brothers 
from the fraternity drove in his entourage. 

This past year also marked the end of the 
TKF.'s 25th year at Gannon. The TKE's are 
under the leadership of President John Li- 
chius and Vice-President Mike Perovich.

Chartered in 1954, the "Sigs" arc Gan- 
non's oldest fraternity, which helps give rise 
to their motto; "The first and finest." 

Emphasizing the party life, the Sigs' big 
event for the year was "Casino Night", 
which was held in the Fall. And, during the 
school year the brothers have unofficially 
made 'Sig Night' a weekly event at certain 
area bars. 

In sports the Sigs won the intramural 
football championship. 

In the community, the Sigs have helped 
various organizations like the Heart Asso- 
ciation and the Percens House for juvenile 
delinquents. The brothers were also politi- 
cally active by helping to set up Democratic 
headquarters for the Fourth Ward. 

The Sigs are under the leadership of 
President Tim Greenland and Vice-Presi- 
dent Tom Southard.

Gannon faculty authors 

Five Gannon faculty members: Dr. Rob- 
ert Allshousc. director of graduate social 
studies. Dr. David Frew, director of the 
master of business administration program, 
Mar\ Ann Frew, director of the medical 
assistant program. Dr. Walter Minot, di- 
rector of the freshmen w riting program and 
Dr. Dolores Sarafinski, associate professor 
of English, had books accepted for publica- 
tion in 1980. Dr. Allshouse's book is titled 
"Photographs for the Tsar" and came out 
in September 1980. Dr. Frew and his wife 
\lar\ Ann co-authored two textbooks titled 
"Fundamentals of Mecial Assisting: Ad- 
ministrative and Clinical" and "Medical 
Office and Administrative Procedures," 
which were to come out in the fall of 1981. 
Dr. Minot's textbook titled "Rheotric: The- 
or\ and Practice for Composition" came 
out in December 1980. 

Allshouse's "Photographs for the Tsar" 
is a 240 page book of color and sepia tone

Prokudin-Gorskii. Prokudin-Gorskii was a 
pioneer in color photography and traveled 
through-out Russia taking pictures of ev- 
eryday life. He left 2,000 glass negatives as 
his legacy. These were brought to the Li- 
brary of Congress by Mortimer Graves in 

Allshouse began the year-long project of 
compiling the photos after he noticed a ref- 
erence to the collection in the American 
Associationfor the Advancement of Slavic 
Studies newsletter. "The main thrust of the 
book is the pictures. They are historical 
documents and represent pioneering in col- 
or photography. To see color from this time 
is truly amazing," he explained. 

Articles about the book appeared in "The 
New York Times", "Newsweek" and "The 
Erie Times." The article was also reviewed 
on WJET radio and WQLN radio and tele- 

The Frews' collaborated on their two 
textbooks "Fundamentals of Medical As- 
sisting: Administrative and Clinical" and 
"Medical Office and Administrative Proce- 
dures." Mary Ann Frew was asked to write 
the "Fundamentals" book by the F.A. Da- 
vis Company during her employment with 
them reviewing manuscripts. "My exper-

Minot's text "Rhetoric: Theory and 

Practice for Composition" is designed for 
lower level college writing courses. He has 
tested the practices in the book at Gannon. 
"Most freshmen textbooks suffer from a 
lack of a sound theoretical basis; the theory 
of communication is often inconsistent or 
inaccurate or simply haphazard. My basic 
theory goes back at least as far as Aristot- 
le," Minot explained. 

Minot said he learned a lot from his stu- 
dents that he could not have picked up from 
research along. He gives credit to a number

of them in the preface. Examples of student 
writing are also used in the book. 

It was three years from the time he fin- 
ished the book before he saw it in print. 
There were revisions and changes to be 
made. Then he had to proofread the final 
version and write an index for it. 

Sarafinski's bibliography of Ben Jon- 
son's dramatic works contains over 3,000 
entries. The book was done in collaboration 
with Dr. Elizabeth Aalvage from Medaille 
College in Buffalo and Dr. Walter Lehr- 
man of Akron University in Ohio. The re- 
search was done in Pittsburgh University 
libraries and the Library of Congress in 
Washington, D.C. It took four years to 

The idea for the reference book evolved 
from a dissertation she did in 1973 on Jon- 
son's comedies. It was during research for 
the dissertation that she discovered a need 
for a good annontated bibliography of Jon- 
son's works. "There was no tool like this 
available to me," she said. This book is the 
first annotated bibliography of Jonson's 
dramatic works. 

"The book involved drama and the Re- 
naissance — a natural synthesis of two of 
my loves. Maybe that's what kept me going 
the whole time." she said, A second volume 
of his literary criticism, poems and masques 
is also pined. 

These five books ranging in topic from 
medical to literary make a significant con- 
tributi to the academis world. Gannon also 
benefits as its academic worth is reaffirmed

Being the onl) non-Greek fraternity on 

campus the Sheiks have been able to hold 
their ow n since the\ organized in December 
1969. And recently, in the spring of 1981 
they inducted their first little sisters pledge 

W hile maintaining an official non-recog- 

nition status, the Sheiks have been able to 
pack their house with their unusual theme 
parties like Ben Casey's Birthday, Kami- 
ka/i Nights, the Inaugural Ball, the Beach 
Party, and Cake Night. 

The fraternity showed the true meaning 
of their brotherhood when they devoted 

their time and efforts raising money and 
purchasing a wheelchair for David Stewart 
of the Erie Infant Home Center. 

The Sheiks are under the leadership of 
their President Gary Avolio and Vice- 
President Dave Musky.

One of the select group of students who 
appeared on the Commencement '81 stage 
to receive a special award was Maribeth 
Muckian. who was presented with the 
Monsignor Ennis G. Connelly Award for 
Excellence in Industrial Management. 
There is no doubt that Maribeth was some- 
what comfortable before her audience of 
some four thousand, since she has been on 
stage often as one of the Gannon Theatre's 
finest performers.

Faculty spotlight — Ernie Wright 

Many students will be missing a unique 
business education in the years to come 
after Professor Ernie Wright teaches his 
last class this semester. Perhaps one of the 
most colorful people to ever teach at Gan- 
non, Ernie Wright is colorful because he 
teaches business "the way it is," not always 
by the book. 

Maybe his greatest contribution to Gan- 
non is the Department of Finance, which is 

his own creation. It was "scientifically de- 
signed" by Mr. Wright after he collected 
the opinions of many prominent business- 
men. This is why many business students 
switch their major to finance after their 
freshman year. 

Mr. Wright's plans for the future are to 
relax a little more by keeping up with his 
business reading and writing critiques. Al- 
though his teaching career is concluded, he

does promise "to give 'em a little hell 
through special guest lectures" at Gannon 
if he is asked. 

Although many Gannonites call him 
proud, he only replies: "My students make 
me egotistical." This statement was backed 
up by an Alumni Survey which listed Ernie 
Wright as one of the facility members most 

mentioned as contributing to the education 
of Gannon graduates. This year also marks 
the end of his twenty-eight years as advisor 
to the Student Investment Trust. 

It will certainly be quiet in the classroom 
when Ernie Wright retires, but his work at 
Gannon remains.

Sigma Phi Epsilon 

The youngest organization among the 
Greeks, the Sig Eps were established in No- 
vember, 1977. While still a colony, the Sig 
Eps have kept a sturdy membership and 
expect to be chartered in the near future. 

Staying active in the fraternity system, 
the Sig Eps have their usual party life and 
sponsor the Chug-a-thon during Greek 
week. The Sig Eps have also been strong in 
intramurals, showing some of their strength 
when their former president Jim Mott won 
the one-on-one basketball competition. 

In the community, the Sig Eps helped out 
the Heart Fund by participating in the Run 
For Life. Erie also benefited when the 
brothers cleaned Frontier Park on their 
Founder's Day. 

Despite some problems with the Gannon 
administration and the loss of a pledge

Finals and graduation near the end of 
studying for the year. And the end of study- 
ing signifies the official start of the summer 
social life season, with the first beer, or six- 
pack, or case, being imbibed after the last 
spring final has been put to rest. 

The KDR fraternity, for example, 
planned to inaugurate the opening da\ of 
the season with a tricycle race in downtown 
Erie from one bar to another, to another, to 
another, ad nauseum. 

The race was planned for Friday, the last 

day o\' finals, but apparently the practice 
sessions went a little too well. Most of the 
planned entrants were done with finals on 
Thursday — and after some exhibition bar- 
hopping that night, they were in no condi- 
tion to do anything on Friday. 

The senior week events that weren't can- 
celled included the annual wine and cheese 
party for seniors in the Nash Library Gar- 
dens, a social blast at Sullivan's, a bash at 
the Masonic Temple and the graduation 
dinner-dance also at the Masonic Temple.

The Gannon University Hockey team 
scored big this year, winning the Western 
Pennsylvania Inter-Collegiate Hockey 
League Championship. 

In their championship game, the Gannon 
Hockey team gave Duquesne university its 
second defeat in that school's last two years 
of hockey. The Gannon team shut out Du- 
quesne 4-0 in Pittsburgh's Civic Arena. 

Gannon finished the season with a 1 3-6-2 
record. Four of its losses were to the Univer- 
sity of Pittsburgh and the U.S. Naval 
Academy, schools with much larger hockey 
programs than Gannons, according to Gan- 
non Hockey coach Fred Lane. 

"Chris Winter was outstanding in the 
nets." Lane said. "Larry Collins got more 
and more used to defense this year — be- 
coming an outstanding player. Some games 
he had as much as forty minutes of ice 
time." Lane added. 

The team success was not due to just one 
or two players. Lane added, "At the begin- 
ning of the year we brought a rope into the 
rink, cut it into pieces, and gave each player 
a piece. The idea was that the players 
should depend on each other as if each was 
hanging over a cliff and needed another 
player to hold them up with that rope." 

"The response from fans was great this 
year," Lane said. "An average of 400 to 
500 people came to the Gannon Home 
games, and other teams began to fear play- 
ing at the Gannon 'snake pit', Lane said. 

At the beginning of the year Gannon 
gave the Hockey team $2,000 to spend for 
new equipment, and another $2,000 next 
year will buy equipment and more ice time 
for practice, Lane said. 

The Gannon Hockey season lasts from 
October 1 to March 25.

Gannon harriers . . 

new sport off to "running" start 

With a young, freshman team, Gannon 
Cross Country began to mature during the 
sports first season at Gannon which had 
dropped cross country running in 1973. 

The team won 3 of 6 dual meets it en- 
tered, beating out Hiram College, and Mer- 
cs hurst College twice. The team fared less 
well in its invitational meets, having its best 
showing in the Buffalo State Invitational 
where it finished 9th among the 13 teams 

The team of freshmen runners had no 

previous experience at College cross coun- 
try racing, where the races are twice as long 
as high school cross country. Considering 
that, the team did surprisingly well, Gan- 
non athletic director Bud Elwell said. 
"We're going to be even better next year," 
he added. Elwell named Craig Zgraggen 
the team's number one runner. 

The Cross Country season runs from 
September 12 to October 31. The team is 
coached by Ed Borsuk.

Cross Country Team members: Chris 
Bohrer, Kurt Duryea, John Eliot, Lincoln

Intramural sports at Gannon are often 
followed more closely than the intercolle- 
giate sports and it probably has something 
to do with all the competitors being fellow 
students just your average Joes. 

In the fall semester, the following sports 
were run: golf doubles was won by the Sigs 
with Jeff I yons and Neil Stewart placing 
first m the event. The Sigs also won putt- 
putt as a team with Mike Dunford and Bri- 
an McDonald. Tennis doubles went to the 
Sigs also, even though the Studs had the 
first-place team of John Lucci and Chris 
McDermott. The Sigs claimed both the 
team and individual championship in the 
Football Field Meet, with Randy Jones 
winning the title. The billiards title was won 
by Bill Shugars of the APDs, individually. 
The TKEs won foosball as a team with the 
Studs placing the top team of Art Sardini 
and Jeff Harayda. 

Swimming was dominated by a commut- 
er team named Y Diners, with Wehrle plac- 
ing second. The Studs won the softball title 
w hile the Sigs accumulated the most points 
in that event. John Carrig and Fred Heintz 
tied for title honors in cross country and 
carried their team of Brothers and Others 
to the team title. Bowling was won by Sig I 
with the TKEs amassing the most points. 
Free throws went to the Studs, while Mike 
Schwartz of the APDs won the individual 
free throw title. The Sigs won football and 
got the most points in the event, too. Tom 
Burik again won Ping-Pong singles, as he 
did last year, and helped the Studs to the 
team title. The final event of the fall was 
wrestling, which was won by the Shieks. 
Individual champions for wrestling includ- 
ed Rick Eaton, Dave Gromacki, Phil 
Kuntz. Bill Roth, Joe Rossman, Brothers 
Paul. Mike and Chris Rowane each won 
their event. 

The spring semester started out with bas- 
ketball, and the Studs 'A' team won the 
crown with the Studs getting the most 
points also. Volleyball was again won by 


Studs 'A', and they again amassed the most 
points in that event as they did last year. 
Tom Burik teamed up with his brother, 
Jim. to win Ping-Pong doubles and help the 
Studs claim the team title also. Bill Tracey 
won badminton for the third consecutive 
year, and the TKEs won the event as a 
team. Spring bowling was won by Pike Dix- 
on, with TKE 'A' and TKE 'B' placing first 
and second in the regular season. TKE 'A' 
won one-pitch softball. and the Pikes cap- 
tured the crow n in track and field. Winners 
of events in track and field include Bill 
Morgan for shotput. Mark Trezona in long 
jump. Fred Heintz in the mile run and the 
880 run. John Kleinhanz won both the 220 
and 440 runs. Benny Askew won the 100- 
yard dash. The Pike team of Dennis Ded- 
zierski. Mike Lyth. Mark Dixon and Mark 
Trezona captured the 880 relay, while the 

KDR team of Frank Miller, John Carrig, 
Fred Heintz and Steve DiTullio won the 
mile relay. 

Only four events rema this year, and they 
are tennis singles, horseshoes, golf singles 
and weightlifting. Soccer is in progress, and 
it appears that the TKEs will amass enough 
points in it to outdistance the Sigs and 
Studs for the All-University Trophy. Tim 
Eberlein of the Studs holds a slim lead over 
both Rick Eaton of the Studs and Randy 
Jones of the Sigs in the race for All-Univer- 
sity Athlete of the Year. 

Some of women's champions were the 
AGDs for football, Third West Flyers for 
basketball, Mini-Buds for volleyball, Kim 
Dunlap for Ping-Pong singles, Kathy De- 
Fazio and Andrea Midano for Ping-Pong 
doubles, and Trisha Palchalk in badminton.

Robert C Hammer 

Perhaps the one thing that people re- 
member most about Bob Hammer is his 
smile. He gave it freely in his years here at 
Gannon; laughing, joking, or politely ask- 
ing a co-worker or work-study student to 
please have a particular mailing prepared 
on time. His smile is just one of the many 
things we remember about Bob. And one of 
the reasons he won't be forgotten, 
by Monica Lewis 

Robert C. Hammer, 
Director of Operations 
at (iannon and '49 gra- 
duate of Gannon Uni- 
versity, passed away on 
October 15, 1980 at 
the age of 55. 

Father Mai Thanh Phan 

Our true home is in heaven, and Jesus 
Chrisi whose return we long for. will come 
from heaven to save us. 
Phil. 3:20 

Father Mai Thanh Phan (John Baptist 
Mai). 44, professor of theology at Gannon 
University, passed away on Dec. 5, 1980. 

Fr. Mai. a native of North Vietnam, 
joined the faculty of Gannon in 1976. In 
addition to his work at the university he had 
been actively engaged in working with Viet- 
namese refugees who resettled in the Erie 
and Buffalo areas and also assisted on 
weekends at St. Agatha Parish, Meadville. 

He died suddenly on Friday evening after 
suffering a massive heart attack while visit- 
ing a Vietnamese family in Erie. 

Fr. Mai was born in North Vietnam in 
1936 and escaped from there in 1954. He 
studied at the Sorbonne University in Paris 
and then enrolled at the Propaganda Fide 
College. Rome, where he earned Ph. L. de- 
gree in 1957 and an S.T.D. degree in 1963. 

Ordained to the priesthood in Rome in 
1962. he first came to Erie in 1964 as an 
undergraduate student in mathematics at 
Gannon College. Completing his studies 
here, he then studied at Fordham Universi- 
t>. New York City, where he earned an 
additional masters degree. 

Returning to Vietnam as a professor at 
the University of Hue, South Vietnam, he 
also taught at the University of Danang. 

He was forced to flee South Vietnam in 
1975. Indoing so, he led a group of refugees 

in a small boat across the China Sea. The 
group was stranded in the boat for over a 
week and were attacked by modern-day pi- 
rates during their escape. When the group 
finally arrived in Guam, it was in the midst 
of a typhoon with winds of up to 250 mph. 
Fr. Mai was creditied with having led the 
refugees through that storm to safety. 

When the group was safely settled in 
Guam, he undertook leadership of over 
1,000 Vietnamese refugees and attempted 
to find them employment and job training. 

Once the resettling efforts in Guam were 
completed, Fr. Mai arrived in Erie to assist 
with refugees in this area and to teach the- 
ology at Gannon. 

In March 1979 he was cited by the Na- 
tional Conference of Bishops for his "out- 
standing work in resettling refugees follow- 
ing the fall of Saigon." 

That award, signed by Bishop Thomas 
Kelley of the bishops' conference and Arch- 
bishop John Quinn, president of the US. 
bishops, said in part: 

"In gratitude to Fr. Phan Thanh Mai 
whose humanitarian efforts and selfless 
dedication in assisting and caring for refu- 
gees have demonstrated a commitment to 
the highest human values while promoting 
a new life, hope and opportunity for South- 
east Asian refugees." 

"He was one of the most gentle persons 
and one of the finest priests I have ever 
know," said Monsignor Nash. "His great- 
est joy was bringing Christ to others, and 

his greatest pain was not being able to do 
that in his homeland." 

Gannon president Dr. Joseph Scottino 
said, "While his life among us was tragical- 
ly short, he gave to all who have known him 
the example of a Christian life that can be 
of immeasurable benefit to each of us as we 
plot again the direction of our lives." 

May God grant eternal rest to Fr. Mai - 
a brother, priest, friend and an example for 
us all.

The Fighlh Annual Fund Phonathon in

This \ ear's total Annual Fund support: 
both from the Fall mail appeals and the 
seven nights in February of Phonathon is 
expected to total more than 5115,000.00 
when the sear's campaign ends June 30, 

Two hundred and sixteen students took 
their turns as volunteers on the phones this 
year and were able to reach 4,161 alumni. 
39 percent of the alumni reached this year 
pledged compared to 33 percent during last 
sear's Phonathon. The increase in percent 
o\' participation by alumni is a vers healths 
indication that a grossing number of alumni 
have good feelings about Gannon and un- 
derstand the need of continued annual sup- 
port. 749 nesv pledges were received this 

Father Larry Speice, who has directed 
the Annual Phonathon for the past eight 
sears feels that "This year's effort reflects 
some svonderful changes out there among 
our 9.000 plus alumni." Conversations 
\sere longer and a lot more questions and 
positive comments about the University 
ssere shared, alumni to student.

A new era — 

Phonathon 8 a success 

Negative comments were at an all-time 
low, while even the percent of refusals was 
down from 51 percent last year to 46 per- 
cent this year. Students reported a number 
of alumni who could not contribute this 
year but who had very good feelings about 
Gannon and wanted to be part of its future. 

"Alumni Affairs at Gannon right now" 
according to Fr. Speice "is like putting a

the new era is beginning to take shape." 
This year's successful Phonathon and the 
earlier mail campaign, the hiring of an 
Alumni Affairs Director, extablishment of 
the Erie and Regional Task Forces, the 
emergence of renewed interest in Gannon 
and its future are all healthy signs of the 
budding of this "new era."

Running away. It's something tradition- 
all) displayed as a parental concern — a 

problem lor adults lo deal with. Not so in 
Gannon*! theatre production of 
"Runaways", a contemporary musical by 

l 1/ Suados performed on the Gannon stage- 
as the 80-81 season opener. 

In "Runaways", the typical view-point 
was reversed and running away was seen 
through the eyes o\~ 2M young people por- 
traying runaways. The stage was set as an 
inner city playground, where a group of 
runaway teenagers lived, sharing their 
fears, and emotions, their anger and laugh- 
ter. Amid the scenery which included a 7': 
fire escape, bleachers, a swingset, graffitti, 
a sliding board and a shanty, the cast per- 
formed seventeen knockout musical num- 
bers under the vocal direction of Mary Ann 
Muller and choreographed by Kathy 
(ireen. The music ranged from Latin, west- 
ern, pop. and chacha to reggae, ballad, soul 
and blues. 

Directed by A.J. Miceli of the Theatre 
and Communication Dept., the two act 
musical portrayed how the imagination of 
youth takes the runaways from their own 
real or spiritual ghetto. The collage of 
speeches and songs reflected the reasons be- 
hind running away, and the play was 
brightened by the ironic, satiric, often-per- 
verse humor used to escape the reality of it. 
Close to 100 people auditioned for the con- 
temporary musical, which was presented on 
October 23-26, 29-31 and November 1 and 

The cast included Jenny Capretto, Ran- 
dy Murzynski, Lauren Baughman, John 
Skiff, Bill Doan, Glenn Horton, Barry Cor- 
bett, Carla Granato, Denise Horton, Bon- 
nie Watson, Mary Spaeder, Sal Clemente, 
Lon Jenkins, Chuck Priestap, John Burton,

guage. Special performances were present- 
ed to largely deaf audiences with complete 
translations — a first in Erie Theatre. 

A triology of three one act plays, entitled 
"Their Solitary Way'* were presented by 
the GL Theatre on November 21 and 22. 
The triology was written by 1980 Gannon 
graduate. Dennis Deley, at the request of 
the Gannon Theatre for the purpose of ex- 
perimental one-act plays. 

The theme of the three plays was death, 
and through his writings, Delaney por- 
trayed peoples reactions to it. "The subject 
has always interested me; it is relatable to 
all people, everyone goes through it, and the 
feelings and reactions associated with it are 
both right and wrong often at the same 
time." Delaney noted. 

A three-play repetory presentation hig- 
lighted the spring season at Gannon's The- 
atre, starting on March 12th and ending in 
early April. The productions included Ste- 
phen Vincent Bennet's Stories of America, 
Henrick Ibsen's "A Doll's House", and 
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" 
b\ Tom Stoppard. 

"Stories of America" was presented in 
conjunction with Gannon's University Fes- 
tival Celebration of the Tri-centennial of 
the state of Pa. The play was directed by 
A.J. Miceli and Barb Miodus and consisted 

of six players performing in alternating 
characters, Benet's historic works and poet- 
ry. Cast members included Mary Spaeder, 
Barb Shaw, Natalie Massing, Ron Seroka, 
Dennis Delaney, and John Skiff. 

In "A Doll's House", Nora, played by 
Maribeth Muckian, deals with an awkward 
problem and a search for her own identity. 
Set in the Victorian era, the play included 
Nora's husband, Torvald, played by Dan 
Erickson, also included were Randy Mur- 
zynski, Anne DeMichael, Jim Harris, Jen- 
ny Capretto, and Andrea LoPicollo, The 
play was directed by Alex Clemente and 
Dan Diconstanzo. 

"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are 
Dead", a farce on Hamlet, written by Tom 
Stoppard, was performed by Bill Doan and 
Barry Corbett as the famous pair of hu- 
mourous bumblers. Dennis Delaney played 
Hamlet and Caroline Marchwinski played 
played Ophelia, also featured were Larry 
Kieser, Maggie Muddery, John Skiff, Ran- 
dy Murzynski, Jim Harris, Tony Flugenzio, 
Ed Helinski, Bob Steinick, Ed O'Keefe, 
Ken McDonald, Dan Diconstanzo, Mark 
Moorehead, Sue Anderson, and Mary Tor- 

One of the many unique features of the 
Gannon Theatre's Repertory presentations 

was the original music which accompanied 
many of the scenes in their performance of 
Stephen Vincent Benet's Stories of Amer- 
ica. Waterford native, Jim Skiff, composed 
and recorded the score for the show, setting 
the words of Benet to his own music. Jim is 
the brother of John Skiff, who was one of 
the players in "Stories of America."

The final word . . 

This book was started last summer tak- 
ing pictures at the first freshmen orienta- 
tion. Now. one year later, this the last page, 
is about to be completed and the last dead- 
line finished and mailed. A great deal of 
time, energy, and effort has gone into these 
pages. Long nights of typing, cropping, and 
wishing you'd never heard of this blasted 
book, but it is now nearly completed. And 
while we have tried to capture the past 
year's people, places, and events which we 
believe everyone would most like remem- 
bered, we have our own memories from do- 
ing this book; such as the night before the 
May 10th graduation, as two graduating 
seniors worked into the wee hours of the 
morn' to complete a deadline, or the year- 
book parties — that while slow getting 
started always ended on an unpredictable, 
but definite upswing. 

Yet, while there have been good times, 
there have also been times of questioning 
whether it has been worth so many hours of 
work. This fall when the books are passed 
out — will they or the time spent producing 
them be appreciated? Probably not. But it 
is somewhat reassuring though, to think 
that 10 years from now as we reminisce 
about "our good ol' college days" — we 
have but to pick up an '81 LANCE. For 

within a mere 200 pages are captured an 
entire year's worth of Gannon life. Possibly 
then, this book and its staff will be appreci- 
ated. But now, as has been the custom, nei- 
ther the administration, the faculty, nor the 
student body will appreciate this book. It is 
not perfect, little in life is, but it is some- 
thing which I, and my staff are quite proud 
of. It is an expression of our feelings to- 
wards Gannon and how we would best like 
to remember the past year. 

Thus hopefully, with this LANCE, possi- 
bly the customary, apathetic attitude sur- 
rounding past Gannon yearbooks will end 
and a new attitude shall prevail. One of new 
found interest among the Gannon commu- 
nity to contribute to the '82 LANCE in 
making it even bigger and better — one 
which we can all be proud! 

For the graduating seniors who must now 
say good-bye — both to Gannon and to 
friends — I hope this LANCE holds the 
fondest memories of your last year at Gan-
